The Tarkio Community Christmas Celebration will be held Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Tarkio Community Building (603 S. 3rd Street). Vendors are welcome to set up booths free of charge and sell their wares during the event (call 660-744-4049 or 660-736-5254).

Bring your kiddos to see Santa and to have their photo taken with him. Also have them bring their Santa letters so that they can be printed in the Atchison County Mail. The Mule Barn Theatre Guild will provide ornament making and the kids can also color Christmas pictures and cards for Tarkio Rehabilitation and Health Care residents. Santa’s gift shop will also provide items that the children can purchase to give to their family and friends ($1 gets five gift vouchers). If you would like to donate an item, call TJ Slemp at 660-528-0829. Proceeds will be used for Tarkio Youth Sports. The Tarkio Lions Club will be serving free chili and hot dogs. This event is sponsored by the Tarkio Chamber Of Commerce, Tarkio Lions Club, and Mule Barn Theatre Guild.
